OK:KO are a band of next generation Finnish Jazz musicians who have gained popularity on the course of the past year despite of their young age. Lead by percussionist Okko Saastamoinen, the band won the Finnish semi final of the Young Nordic Jazz Comets competition last year. Their debut album Land E. which was released this spring turned out to be one of the pleasant surprises of the year. OK:KO’s music combines influences of Scandinavian Jazz music with Finnish rustic romanticism - seemingly simple elements - but when powerful melodies are joined with the ability of building beautiful temporal pictures, the result is effective and memorable music.
